New School Built in Quake Stricken Azarbaijan with Your Donations to RAZI
On August 12, 2012 a devastating twin earthquakes virtually flattened several villages in and around the small town of Varzeghan
in East Azarbaijan province of Iran leaving hundreds dead and thousands injured and made homeless.
After shipping immediate relief
packages of food and clothing to the disaster-hit areas, our attention quickly turned to reconstruction efforts and long-term needs
of the population. Therefore, our attention was focused on building of a large school and dormitory complex to house
displaced students who, otherwise, would not be able to attend any schooling due to very poor condition of the roads in the area.
new school building designed to withstand quakes registering up to 8 degrees on a richter scale was then built and put into operation
in 2013 with a cooperation of our local affiliates at the Child Foundation. The new building
can additionally make it possible for 100 students to spend the entire school week at school's well-maintaind environment.
On weekends, they are bused safely back to their homes in surrounding villages using schools own transportation.
Construction of the new quake-resistant school building began shortly after groundbreaking ceremony in winter of 2012
